C-7 Megan’s mountain laurel


Ok, back to some quilting content. Recall that I have the Dear Jane Software from Electric quilt which makes many things so much easier. I printed out the paper patterns, which have quite a few fiddly bits for the inner diamonds. You just have to slow down and take it step by step.
I decided not to applique the diamonds but to piece them. Just extend lines out (look at my seam lines above). I did this with previous blocks like Decisions, decisions, and yes it adds more small pieces to fiddle with, but for me anyway it reduces my frustration.

Very nice block..love the colors but looks much too hard for me. I have both dear jane program and EQ5 but have not used them much yet.

Pretty block. Very clever the way you pieced it together.
